DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Defensive back Dimitri Patterson has been awarded to the Miami Dolphins one day after being waived by the Cleveland Browns.

The Dolphins also placed backup tight end Charles Clay on injured reserve Tuesday with a right knee injury. Patterson reinforces the secondary with the questionable status of cornerback Nolan Carroll, who hurt his left knee in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

Patterson, who signed a $16 million, three-year contract last offseason, has appeared in seven games this season with four starts. He missed seven games after tearing a ligament in his left ankle, but has played the past two weeks.

Patterson had a career season with Philadelphia in 2010, when he made four interceptions. The Dolphins are his fifth team.
